Natchez Crepe Myrtle Description

Natchez Crepe Myrtle

 

Natchez Crepe Myrtle: While it can reach between twenty to thirty feet high, Lagerstroemia, or the Natchez crepe myrtle, is a deciduous shrub. It is a TN Nursery best-selling species, and we sell hundreds of crepe myrtles in a range of stunning colors every year.

 

Natchez crepe myrtle will bloom during the mid-summer, providing fresh color after many other blooming trees finish flowering. We suggest you pair them with early-season flowering shrubs and trees.

 

Lagerstroemia is a species native to Asia--specifically, Korea and China. However, Americans have long since adopted this shrub after falling in love with the outstanding and abundant blooms. Today, you will find it showing off in the warmer USDA growing zones. It enjoys immense popularity in the southeastern United States.

 

Natchez Crepe Myrtle Offers Outstanding Beauty

 

The abundant, creamy white flowers of the Natches crepe myrtle decorate the landscape all across the south during the middle of summer. Dozens of tiny white flowers form in massive clusters, giving the appearance of a single giant bloom. The blossoms last for several weeks, making them highly desirable.

 

The multi-branched shrub has graceful, slender branches that make a pleasing shape. During its early growth, gardeners often train it to grow taller to appear more tree-like. However, others leave it natural, allowing nature to take its course and develop a bushier look. Either way is correct--it depends on the gardener's preference.

 

The medium-green oval leaves are small, measuring under two inches long. But many will develop, providing a lovely, shaded canopy.

 

The bark is light and has a slightly rough texture. It renews by peeling during the summer, especially after the blossoms fade.

 

Crepe myrtle flowers give birth to many inch-long brown pods containing many seeds.

 

Natchez Crepe Myrtle Attracts Pollinators in the Summer and Birds in the Winter

 

The beautiful, bright white blossoms are irresistible to pollinators. You will see bees, dragonflies, butterflies, and moths visiting your Natchez crepe myrtle.

 

In the winter, any remaining birds will visit your Natchez crepe myrtle. The pods left behind by the flowers provide them with an abundant food source. This shrub is a significant nutritional source for birds after the insects and worms become unavailable in the winter.

    Came packaged nicely. It's fall so I don't know what it will look like until spring. Now I just have to wait until then.

    What a great size the trees were on arrival! They were totally dormant, of course, and seemed to take forever to leaf out. But leaf out they did, and now all four are happily growing. These are really good trees at a great price. Thank you for the good service and great product!
